This episode was so funny and compelling and surprising! I really can’t say at this point if Darlene is going to end up with David or Ben or neither. I guess it SEEMS most plausible she and Ben can work things out, and things with David were a definite goodbye- but I also know with fiction, they like going a darkest-until-dawn route.
But what I most loved about all this was how TRUE the reactions from David and Ben were- David, with the support of a therapist, able to break free of the past and hopefully start to live without fear. Ben is smart and confident and I like how figured things out and didn’t let what Darlene did to him slide.
I hope whoever she ends up with, even if it’s another person entirely, she learns to be honest and respectful of them.
Harris is a brat but she has been really funny lately- I love her “she should have one but she has two” comment. And Jackie was gold of course! The flat tire scene had me rolling!
Dan and Becky!!! I love how he has to always fix things- and Becky stood up for herself and for her daughter by saying she needs more money and she could be tempted by alcohol anywhere. I could totally see Dan’s point and worry- But this is one instance where life isn’t always ideal but you do the best you can. Which is essentially the theme of the show.
And Louise had me cracking up by selling out Dan lmao. I love her so much!!!
